Jasmine's Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
This was excellent! I've never had enjoyable brussel sprouts before, but this is a KEEPER! After trimming the ends from my brussel sprouts I cut an X in each one. Then while the sprouts simmered I sauteed the garlic. I didn't have the bacon so I used the left over Christmas ham, diced. Also added extra garlic powder. Followed the rest of the recipe to a T. Thanks for sharing!

Pasta, Broccoli and Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
This was good. I would have given 5 stars but I altered the recipe. I added a lot more pesto, garlic, thinkly cut italian kale leaves, and basil. Instead of chicken I used a vegan chicken alternative and instead of rigatoni I used gnocci. Thanks for a great base!

Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
Excellent soup! Rated it as 4 stars because the exact recipe was bland for my taste. I added extra salt & pepper, celery salt, garlic powder to the soup. I also added 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese to the milk & flour mixture. Melted the cheese before adding back into the soup pot. Served with additional cheddar to top and saltine crackers. Thank you for sharing, this will be one I keep.

No-Cream Pasta Primavera

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2010
I am not a balsamic fan, but this was great. I used vegan margerine to meet the vegan diet needs in our house. For the meaty eaters, I used the same seasonings this recipe calls for as a rub for chicken breasts and pan-seared those in EVOO. Cut the chicken up and serve mixed with the primavera for a heavier, more protein rich version. I did increase the spices, and sub'd broccoli for the tomato (based on what I had on hand). This was great, thanks for sharing!

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
This was a great recipe, thank you. I did add a few extra seasonings (celery salt & garlic) and more butter. The extra butter was not necessary afterall, there was a lot of fat/grease once I removed the chicken from the roasting pan. The drippings made for a lovely gravy. I added baby red potatoes (quartered), celery chunks, carrot chunks and onion to the roasting pan when I started cooking the chicken. The veggies got seasoned with the same as the bird. Everything was fabulous! Thank you for sharing this one, it's a keeper and the whole family raved about it.

Scallops with White Wine Sauce I

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2009
While I do not eat seafood, I do prepare it for those who do enjoy it. I rely heavily on other people's recipes to figure out what I am doing. I almost chose a different scallop recipe but thought twice and chose this one. Boy what a GREAT choice that was!! Here are the reviews: Tenderest, sweetest scallops my dad has ever had and he doesn't normally like scallops! He couldn't stay away from them!! My mom, a scallop lover, enjoyed every bite and thought about stealing the package of scallops that I set aside for her to take to my Grandfather. My honey also really enjoyed!! This recipe paired well with the pan-seared rockfish with lemon beurre blanc from foodtv.com. They have very similar sauces and I cooked both dishes at the same time, then served everything with steamed green beans and fresh green salad. Thank you for sharing this one, it IS A KEEPER!!!

Salmon with Lemon and Dill

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2009
While I don't eat seafood I do cook it for the family. This recipe received 5 stars from those eating it and 5 stars from me for it's total ease of preperation and cooking! Due to a limited salt diet I substituted the S&P with Mrs. Dash, but still used the garlic and dill. (Must admit- I didn't measure the spices though, I just sprinkled until it looked good.) Thanks for sharing, this one is a keeper!

Blackened Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
I don't eat seafood but those who did said it was great! I did not use the cayenne because we were out. Instead of plain salt (again- out), I used a garlic salt mix. I used a cast iron pan and cooked the fillets over the grill, thanks to another review. I've never done that before but it sure was great suggestion to prevent the house from heating up from using the stove. I also used the recipe to cook myself some chicken thighs, which were very yummy. I enjoyed the chicken over a salad of mixed greens with light ranch-- perfect for a summer night! Thank you for sharing this one, I'll keep it for both salmon and chicken!

Spanish Potato Omelet

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
I hate to rate this low, but this was a VERY plain omelet. I was not impressed at all. The only thing I tasted was potato, even with quite a bit of salt and pepper. I followed the recipe to a T. Yes, it is very easy to make, so I gave it 1 star. My father liked it, so it got another star. It just lacked flavor in my book. But, maybe, having never been to Spain, bland is how it was supposed to be? Thank you for sharing. I am sorry to rate it so low.

Taqueria Style Tacos - Carne Asada

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
I just used the recipe for the marinade as well to make typical mexican restaurant carne asada. I used a thin cut carne asada beef. I found that for this cut of meat the marinade is a bit too salty and lacked a mexican spicey flavor. I only marinaded the meat for about 30-45 minutes. However, it still tasted GREAT. We served it with store bought salsa, guacomole, sour cream, black beans & rice (by Robyn Webb on this site), refried beans, and sauteed onions and bell peppers all wrapped in tortillas. It was a very tasty meal nonetheless. I will try this one again with the reccommended beef cut as well as following the recipe to a T. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, we enjoyed it.

Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
Oh holy yumminess!! This was a GREAT frosting recipe. I tried it in 3 variations. 1. The original-- scrumptious! 2. With lemon extract added-- was okay, but not great. 3. With extra vanilla-- you can't go wrong with this either, it was yummy. 4. (Yes, saving the best for last) With 8 pureed strawberries (skinned so there were no seeds), 2 tablespoons strawberry syrup, and 1 cup yoplait strawberry yogurt mixed together and then folded into the original frosting recipe-- to die for!!! (I justify this as a healthy alternative because it has the cream = dairy, strawberries = fruit, yogurt = dairy... yes, I'm bad!) This recipe get's 5 stars because the original version is GREAT and it is even better with the strawberry additions above and served over angel food cake or angel food cupcakes. TAHNK YOU Tom for sharing this keeper!

Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
The fam LOVED this one. I am not giving it a 5 because I altered the recipe. My changes: 2-1/2 cups cheddar, 3/4 cup frozen peas, 3/4 cup frozen corn, 1 can condensed cream of chicken, 1 can condensed cream of celery, 1-1/2 Tbl minced garlic and 2 cups potato chips. Also used celery salt, garlic powder and pepper to taste. I don't eat seafood but the rest do. My daughter said this was her FAVORITE casserole (WOW!). Thanks for pointing me in the right direction since I didn't know much about how to prepare this (since I don't eat seafood). Will keep this one as a frequent flyer.

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
Did sub the roast for ground beef though because I had that on hand. Used a 2007 Washington State Columbia Crest Riesling wine which paired nicely. Also subbed sweet onion for green onion and fresh mushroom for canned because of what was on hand. Excellent flavor and simple to make. Thanks!

Jan Hagel Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
I wasn't sure what to expect because I don't care for nuts in baked treats, but my daughter wanted to try them. The walnut flavor and texture actually blends in quite well with the cookie. I had to pull the trays out of the oven early because they were getting a bit too done. Perhaps I spread the dough too thin. (I spread it just under 1/2" thick and it completely filled two 11" x 7" x 1.5" pans) In the end they turned out like a mix between a sugar cookie and short bread. I will make this again and watch the time to see if I just overcooked them. I just don't know if these should be a crisp cookie or a softer cookie.

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2008
Thank you for the reminder on making applesauce! Go figure should be a no brainer, but I always forget and ask myself, "add water?"... "don't add water". Perfect for a grey day!

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
One of my favorite chicken recipes!!! I do add chopped onion, diced garlic and extra marsala. (Tip-- also works with thighs instead of breasts, which don't get as dry when cooking.) Thank you so much for sharing this one. It is simple, amazing tasting and can have a fabulous presentation for dinner parties.
